Soccer. With the Coupe de France, the competition resumes its rights this weekend

The football championship starts in eight days. But the competition is making a comeback this weekend with the Coupe de France.


As an appetizer, the USS will move to Upper Rhine land in Bergheim. The group led by Thierry Friess had a successful preparation phase, despite a period truncated by absences and other physical concerns. The staff will however be able to count on a large and more than homogeneous group made up of 20 players, who will combine youth and experience. The goal is simple for this weekend: find the way to victory. It is an already unprecedented defense that risks being aligned. Fehlmann’s package will be supplemented by the absences of Hennequi and Seyller, who have just returned to the club. On the offensive line, playmaker Gredy, winger Offerle and striker Schmittheissler will also be absent from the debates. Faced with a team playing at the lower levels, the young guard led by Carl and Berrel will have to show will in order to validate the ticket for the next round.


For the first official match of the Fuchs-Bury coaching duo, the Selestadians travel to Trimbach on Sunday. He will still miss a few vacationers but the coaches have been able to put together a competitive group. It will be necessary to be modest and serious in front of a catchy team.


After a copious month of preparation, it’s time for the official resumption and for the eleven pennant, a short trip to Benfeld. Faced with a team that is back in service after a white season, coached by a former ASS, Grégory Wetterer, the visitors will have to highlight the significant hierarchical gap between the two formations. The locals will bet big on the stirring Hugo Wetterer to pose danger in the defense commanded by Victor Schnell. On the visitor side, the unexpected return to business of coach Damien Schnell will have to match the qualification for the 2e round. And even if for his return he will have to do without the suspended Obrecht, Goettelmann and Elikan, absences that he will necessarily compensate with the newcomers, he will be spoiled for choice between Hambli, Klein, Hanns, Lang, Lorentz, Mattéo Ehrhard . In short, the visitors will be anxious to ensure their qualification as quickly as possible by refining their collective with a view to the resumption of the championship. They can also count on a huge Kretz in midfield to achieve their goals.


For this 1er round of the Coupe de France, the draw was not favorable to the locals who will have to face Hindisheim, an opponent playing at the same level. The ground of Hindisheim being impracticable following the passages of the travellers, it is in Nordhouse that this meeting will finally take place. The Epfigeois, still deprived of the long-time injured Kum and Kurban as well as the last Han vacationers, Derradji, Kayhan, Cinar and Rhazoui will nevertheless travel with a common objective: to bring back a qualification. However, this would not be easy, but coach Wollenburger will motivate his troops accordingly.


After having lost in the last two preparation meetings, the official season begins for the guys from the valley tomorrow Sunday at 1er round of the Coupe de France. On this occasion, the St Gillois will offer hospitality in Triembach-au-Val to their almost neighbors of SC Sélestat, residents of Regional 3. Given the difference in level, they will try to look good and not be ridiculed . The task seems very difficult, especially since their player-coach Cédric Ernst, on vacation, will be absent. It will therefore require the support of as many supporters as possible to encourage the locals.


In an official match, the men of coach Marc Barthelmebs have an appointment on Sunday for the 1er round of the Coupe de France, with the reception of the Portuguese from Sélestat at the « Willerbühl » stadium, a team that has only very rarely made the happiness of the FCH. Nevertheless, the locals with their recruits are ready to play a very good game, to offer a big opposition to their hosts and to try to thwart the predictions.


To start his season, Mussig receives his neighbor Baldenheim for this first round of the Coupe de France. The new coach Roland Hennard will lead his first official meeting with the « greens » and will be keen to sign a good result in this derby. Mussig will have to do without Losser and Stoeffler suspended, but also without Fruh and Lafay injured. They can still count on their young guard to hope to join the second round of the competition.


FC Ebersmunster welcomes FC Bindernheim this Sunday, which plays five levels above the “blues”. Very good game to play for the locals who will try to create the feat. The goalkeeper Marajo absent for a moment, will be replaced by Mr. Ehrhart in goal. Absentees still on the local side but coach Conraux will be able to trust the players present. After 5 wins in 5 friendlies, the « blues » will want to continue their momentum.
